Jonny Rankin


Principal Planner

Jonny joined Durrants in Spring 2022, taking the role of Principal Planner within the Building Consultancy team based in Diss. Jonny works alongside fellow Planner Jasmine Philpott. Jonny assists Durrants clients in realising planning permissions for a range of agricultural, residential and renewable energy projects. Applications range from minor to major in scale with some larger developments requiring accompanying Environmental Statements. In past employments Jonny prepared Environmental Impact Assessments and planning applications for over 215MW of renewable energy projects, green infrastructure projects; cross-district cycle routes, park and ride sites and civic officing. Outside of work, Jonny thrives in wild places, enjoying running, cycling and bird watching in Suffolk. Further afield adventures to date have taken place in India, the Himalayan foothills, Arctic Norway and hours spent on the Lake District fells and Scottish Highlands.

Jonny Rankin was very helpful and informed and took a real interest in opposing an appeal against refusal of a planning application on our behalf. He took the trouble to make a detailed site visit, took into account the property title issues and put together a persuasive representation on our behalf which was successful.
